 Rainbow yoga pants

To celebrate my baby's hips getting well enough for her doctors to allow her to be harness-free during the day I made her a pair of pants using the leftovers from her Tulips sweater:

yarn: Dream in Color "Classy" (main color: Summer Sky)
pattern: my own

The only problem is that I didn't use as much of the leftover yarn as I thought I would .... I have enough for several more pairs of pants!

My name is Michelle and when I signed up for this blog, I was knitting baby booties for a friend. Meanwhile I became pregnant and had my 3rd son in December. Here are some pics of Patrick with finished objects. You can see more on the other blog I post on

 Meathead Hat

What a quick knit. Fits my 13 month old son perfectly. I had a lot of fun making that hat, that I want to make like 10 more. I'm due again with baby number 2 this June, another boy. I definitely want to whip up a bunch more hats!

 In The Hood

I just finished what will probably be my last pre-birth knit, the Hoodie Baby Blanket from Magknits (as modeled by my daughter's Snow White Doll). I decided with this baby to go practical rather than heirloom and this towel/blanket perfectly fits the bill. I knit it up in Cotton Ease, so it was fairly inexpensive too. A little bit of a boring knit (just straight stockinette for the most part), but I think we'll get loads of use out of it once our little man arrives.

There's more info on my blog if you're interested.
